This past Saturday morning, a crowd of art-lovers gathered in the tasting room before regular opening hours to listen to artist Jeff Burgess describe his latest piece, "The Dinner Party", which is now featured on the main wall adjacent to the tasting bar. This is a piece that Liquidity Wines has commissioned and that Jeff has worked on over the past year now.
Jeff's initial inspiration for this ensemble piece was from the Mad Hatter's Tea Party in Alice in Wonderland. He immersed himself in David Day's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Decoded and found many fascinating metaphors that Lewis Carroll had hidden in the story, and that is where the idea of an At Table scenario first presented itself.
This wonderful, whimsical piece is full of numerous allegorical themes that reference art history as well as literary and mythological sources. To see it in person and to read through Jeff's description, please stop by the tasting room. Open daily from 11am to 6pm.
